DVD/Blu-ray Release: Fright Night

December 20, 2011

On December 13th, Walt Disney Home Entertainment released DreamWorks Pictures’ Fright Night on Blu-ray & DVD.  A remake of the 1984 horror-comedy classic, this is a bloody good mix of suspenseful thrills and great performances.  We reviewed the film when it opened in theatres on August 19th, our overall consensus was:

“With some wickedly funny humour to offset the genuinely suspenseful and scary scenes, director Craig Gillespie’s bitingly sharp remake of Fright Night delivers a good sense of summer fun and is carried by excellent performances from a stellar cast that includes a smoothly creepy turn by Colin Farrell.  *** (Out of 4)”

The Blu-ray includes deleted/extended scenes, a short featurette, a music video as well as a promo for Peter Vincent’s (David Tennant) fictional stage show and the full ‘home movie’ that appears in the movie.

Fright Night is 106 minutes and rated 14A.
